    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Tucked into the velvety loft of the Lyceum Theatre, Candor is a cocktail bar and stage hosting small-scale, intimate affairs. It leans heavily on nostalgia for a sort of 1920's-via-1950's burlesque aesthetic. An intensely visual place, it's dominated by a curtained stage that stops a few inches short of the seating area, vintage paintings and photos on the walls, masks, feathers in place of flowers, crystal chandelier lighting, and a long bar manned by waistcoated bartenders. Private booths line the walls. It's exceedingly red. Cocktails are, for the most part, in the 90-100rmb range, and very bold. Several come with a licorice straw. There's a miniature cinema-style popcorn bucket hanging off the side of another, and it's one of the few places in town that's willing to mix a Ramos Gin Fizz (158rmb). There are regular shows of the showgirl/cabaret/burlesque variety, but they sometimes host in other styles, sticking close to the early-mid 20th century. The seating's pretty strict during shows, if you buy your tickets on the door you might not have a seat.
